Development of carcass cuts, organs, body tissue and chemical body composition during growth of pigsDownload
A serial slaughter trial was carried out to examine the developmental change of physical and chemical body composition in pigs highly selected for lean content. A total of 48 pigs (17 females and 31 castrated males) were serially slaughtered and chemically analysed. Eight pigs were slaughtered at...
Allometric association between in vivo estimation of body composition during growth using deuterium dilution technique and chemical analysis of serial slaughtered pigsDownload
The objective of this study was to develop accurate mathematical-statistical functions to estimate body composition of live pigs between 20 and 140 kg weight from total body water (TBWA) determined by the deuterium dilution technique. Chemical body compositions during the growth period are...
